    Is there a waiting time that I have to go through to get paid from clickbank. For example amazons affiliate program has a 60 day wait from sale to payment and a lot of the other affiliate networks have a least a 30 day wait.

    What I'm want to know is when I make a sale and earn a commission can I request payment straight away as long as I've met my payment threshold.

    Before you get your first payment you must meet the following requirements
    Code:
    [h=2]CUSTOMER DISTRIBUTION REQUIREMENT[/h][COLOR=#333333][FONT=Helvetica Neue]ClickBank will withhold payment of any balance until an account shows a minimum of 5 sales using at least two of the following payment methods:[/FONT][/COLOR]
    
    [LIST]
    [*]American Express
    [*]Carte Bleue
    [*]Diners Club
    [*]Discover
    [*]ELV (European Direct Debit)
    [*]JCB
    [*]Maestro
    [*]MasterCard
    [*]PayPal
    [*]Visa
    [/LIST]
    
    After that, payments are sent 2 weeks after meeting the payment threshold. As long as you meet the threshold every time you will get a payment sent every other Wednesday. If you get direct deposit it might be different but I always get a check.

    Correct me if I'm wrong here, but even if you pass your payment threshold you must have made at least 5 sales and all of them need to use different payment methods in order for you to receive your first check. After that I don't think it matters.

    Maybe that's a new thing because I have no idea. No PayPal information is attached to my account.

    the 5 sale rule can be relaxed. Contact them and tell them that you are eager to encash your funds. They manually released my first payment when I joined. As for waiting time, yes there is a minimum waiting time for like 2 weeks or so.

    I get paid every week on Tuesdays and it is from 2 weeks prior. No Paypal. I have it directly deposited into my bank account (which is a $2.50 fee). They hold approx 10% for refunds and such which is released back to you in 6 weeks (Although this can supposedly fluxuate depending on your refund/chargeback percentage rate). So my typical check has 10% withheld for future refunds and also any current refunds/chargebacks taken out.
